  • Catalogue Essay

    “I have always been attracted, even in Michaël’s earliest work, by his ability to condense a great deal of visual information into his paintings and still arouse the viewer’s curiosity. There is a lot of space in his work. That relates to his relationship with representation—are these paintings representational; are they non-representational; how do you paint something that doesn’t exist? That quality of openness is very much part of his attentive process to the act of making something”. Jeffrey Grove
